was very thorough in explaining things to me. She said "Sharon, I want
you to know that as of now you have no cancer. You carry a red flag as
our marker to indicate to us that you are a high risk candidate. I want
you to go home and enjoy your life to the fullest."
I went to my surgeon on October 21st and he was satisfied with how
things were progressing . I asked him many questions and he told me
what the oncologist had said about the red flag as their marker. If I
have any indication that something doesn't seem right I am to call the
surgeon immediately. I have an appointment with the surgeon in 6 months
and will continue to see him every 6 months in the future.
From the bottom of my heart I want to say THANK YOU although that seems
so inadequate. You have been so faithful in praying for me; sending
e-mails; sending cards; sending scripture verses; phone calls & hugs.
In one of the first e-mails that I sent I stated that I knew that God
had chosen the surgeon and now also the oncologist. It has been 3
months in which I have learned to enjoy each new day and to depend on
God for my daily strength because He is always there for me. As a
portion of the song "BECAUSE HE LIVES" says 'But still the calm
assurance: This child can face uncertain days because Christ lives.
Because He lives I can face tomorrow.' Sharon
